Question about KitchenAid Cooktops

Kitchenaid Gas Cooktop with electronic ignition

This is a weird one.  Twice our cooktop (about 10 years old) has popped and flashed from a rear burner, tripping the circuit breaker.  One other burner was being used at the time.  The flash is so instantaneous that we haven't seen exactly where the flash originates.  We had an electrician look at the plugs, etc., after the first event, but he found nothing.  The second time it happened we decided it must be a problem with the cooktop unit.  Any guesses?

You sound as if the short is occourring within the switch assy perhaps water has spilled on it, listed on gas range, but assuming you have an electric unit, with the knobs poking through the glass

Thermador gas cooktop explosion


I would say that pop was one of you igniters.  either that or the stove is not installed correctly and when it gets warm, thermal expansion makes the metal pop.  I would say that I would use caution and discontinue its use.  Most problems with these need to fixed professionally.

Kitchenaid gas ccoktop electronic ignition continues to click


We called in an appliance repair technician. He said during the cleaning process of the cooktop, when the control knobs had been removed to thoroughly clean the cooktop, some cleaning fluid or water or moisture got into the ignition switch panel under the cooktop. Letting it dry for 24 hours should fix the problem and this appears to have done that.

Cooktop's electronic igniter started clicking all by itself


Check to make sure your burner caps are aligned. I had this problem, and it turned out one of my burner caps was slightly askew. Putting it level fixed the problem.
